SUMMER 2020 - Guided tour in the glasss blowing workshop
This variant is currently unavailable
Discover blown glass through a guided tour in the workshop of La Méduse, in the Magdalen Islands.
You are interested in making an incursion in the workshop of La Méduse, to have a close look at our work, but without having to participate in the realization of a piece of glass? Our guided tour is just right for you!
The guided tour is a 25 minutes visit through our workshop. During that time, you are invited to walk around the workshop with one artisan. You will get information about the equipment, the glassblowing, and the materials. Then, you can observe the forming of a piece of glass, both feet in the workshop. This visit gives you the chance to discover the world of glassmaking, from the inside, at La Méduse.
Please note that usually our tours are given in French, unless you book a full visit for an English speaking group. If you understand French, you are very welcome to book a regular visit and we will adapt. Thanks for your understanding.
